Morning Memo/Thursday: City coyotes … Dry weekend … Sounders lose

Weather: Light rain today, but clear tomorrow (!), with 63 degrees expected on Saturday and 64 on Sunday. Not exactly camping weather for the holiday weekend, but this is the Northwest, and we’re tough, right? The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Coyotes in West Seattle ... and just about everywhere else in the city. Our news partner the West Seattle Blog has photos and a very interesting map that pinpoints coyote sightings over time, and there have been a mess of them. Have a look. And there’s a great photo of a coyote pup.

Sounders FC: They’re 0-3 at home after they suffered another loss. Some 38,000 fans at CenteryLink last night must be in a funk. The team, however, is off to a 7-3-2 start, which is still a franchise best.

The importance of things to worry about: And does the punishment fit the, er, crime? The grandparents of a high-school boy are not happy with the principal at a  school in the Washtucna School District in Eastern Washington because, they allege, the principal briefly sat on the boy, making it hard for the youngster to breathe. The 14-year-old’s violations: He wore his hat inside the school and then reclined on a school bench, which are against the rules. The principal is on leave and the Adams County sheriff’s office is looking into the matter. The Spokesman Review  via KREM TV has the story.

Many young parents: And speaking of schools, an alternative high school in Richland (think Tri-Cities) will have a daycare facility next fall so that students with children can bring them to school. The hope is to improve graduation rates. Ten percent of the 200 students at the school are parents.
